    Loved this post Jennifer! I do clean my brushes but it’s always helpful to know what a professional makeup artist uses to clean them. You’ve shown me some new products. Thank you!

    Great post, Jennifer, thanks! Excellent info. Love the Mrs. Myers soaps and scents, as you mention. All wonderful. I use Johnson baby shampoo b/c I figure it’s gentle and also effective. Another cost-effective option?

      Carolina Girl – yes I have heard some use the JJ shampoo! I believe that’s a really good option but it can’t seem to cut through my heavy makeup usage on my personal brushes – ha!

    Thanks for the helpful information. I have rosacea which is very well controlled. It was suggested to me that I wash my brushes daily with baby shampoo which I do. I’ve also heard from other makeup artists that they do the same. Do you have any thoughts on this? Would appreciate your opinion!
    Thank you!

      Hey Cathy! Yes I believe the JJ is a great option for gentle cleaning and sensitive skin/rosacea. I believe the act of just cleaning makeup brushes is so important and as long as you fully rinse out whatever cleanser you use from the bristles, you should be good to go!
